Well this is the most excited I've been for a few years at least for the start of the season. A good summer for a change, renewed optimism and a feeling of togetherness...all ready to be shattered tomorrow :lol:

Having been to Millwall on the opening day last year, this cannot be any worse. Very tough game though, Burnley are a solid side and despite their losses will be tough to beat. Atmosphere should be good and fingers crossed we can sneak a result.

Silvestri

Berardi
Bamba
Bellusci
Taylor

Cook
Adeyemi
Mowatt

Byram
Wood
Dallas/Doukara

Come on you whites!

Leeds look good so far, dangerous coming forward, very watchable. Burnley really haven't got going.

Edit; just as I see that Leeds get away with an absolute stonewall penalty. Awful from the linesman he couldn't miss that.

Darikwa looking really well first half. Composed on the ball and defending well.

Good cross for the goal. Poor defensively, don't think he's made a tackle.

Leeds look like the better team, Burnley average apart from Vokes.

absolutely gutted. i felt we did more to win than Burnley, Antenucci responds "I'm still here"

great goal, but Bellusci let's us down again

Yeah, I think Leeds deserved it but that's football.

Can see them sniffing around the top 10 this season.

Good to hear he's doing well! Could have used him today.

Obviously you should be winning games you lead after 85 minutes but trying not to be too down about it. Burnley are well organised and we shaded it. Dallas looked the part and was so unlucky not to score just a few minutes in. A lot of nice interplay with the youngsters with Byram particularly impressive. Fantastic goal from Antenucci but he's unfortunate as I don't see where he comes into the team. Byram and Dallas have those wing positions until they get injured/drop their form.

Been at a wedding all weekend out in the sticks so haven't had chance to check the footy until today.

Sounds like we were lucky to get away with a point but could also have had a couple of penalties which might have made a difference.

I reckon a few teams will come unstuck at Elland Road this season so I'm happy to come away with a point.
